Enterprises face a looming deadline to become GDPR-compliant. This regulation will impose significant obligations on businesses that handle the personal data of EU residents.

GDPR is mandatory in that organizations cannot keep data and content forever. GDPR also encourages better records management and strong information governance. The total cost or risk of data and information retention needs to be measured and managed. All the back up and historical data sources could be in the scope of any request for correct data usage. Organizations will be required to change or remove current or past data. The implications of this policy are huge.

Many of the compliance issues are tied to information that is locked inside of documents, so Intelligent Content Analytics can assist with speeding up the process of ensuring GDPR compliance. This research note overviews the process of becoming GDPR-compliant for incoming data and content, as well as for preexisting content.
